Work Period - 2015
Every city speaks with its own language. Its words are the cultural, social, and political symbols which lie scattered, waiting for a concerned viewer to experience and a practical photographer to capture. In a first hand manner, the artist experiences this conversation which has been spoken on the streets since ancient times. Often hidden from the viewer, often in plain sight, the sights, sounds and smells of the city are captured by the camera.
Photographed in Mumbai during a short visit in 2015, these photographs are the first images of long term documentary of the social, political and religious symbolism I found throughout many city walks. They may be specific to Mumbai, but understood in all of Indian culture.
